However, we want you to consider each of our option to know which one would suit your design best. We will help you come up with a patch that would suit you, your business, or your organization best.

Your Background Option

These are the kind of fabric that we are to use for your patches. They served as a background for your design.

1. Polyester Twill

This is the most basic background option. It is perfect for custom embroidered patches. It allows the edges of your patch to be heat-sealed to secure the threads and to prevent fraying. It also provides a glossy finish.

2. Polyester Felt

Felt is made of high-quality polyester fibers pressed together. The material is fluffy but not as soft as cotton. This background makes your patches more unique. It provides a vintage yet retro feel.

3. Camouflage

This is the background used in making military patches. If you want a different urban look, go for this option.

Your Thread Coverage Option

It is up to you if you want your background to be fully covered with your design or not. If you choose 100% coverage, you allow your design to be clearly visible. The patches also become hard and tough. The only disadvantage is that they may be difficult to stay intact when attached to clothes.

Less than 100% coverage makes the background of your custom embroidered patches visible. It is ideal for camouflage background. It is also recommended for polyester felt since the material is already tough.

Your Backing Options

We also have a variety of backing options. These are located at the back of the fabric background. They provide the attachment that would enable the patches to be inserted in an article of clothing.

1. Plastic Backing

This option allows your patches to have a flat finish. It adds weight and support to your custom embroidered patches. Plastic backing is our default backing. It is already included in the total cost of your patch. This option is for any kind of patches with any shape, size, and background.

2. Iron-on Backing

This backing is also referred as heat-sealed backing. With the use of a household iron, you have to apply heat to this backing before you can attach the patches to your clothes. Our iron-on backing lasts longer than others. They are great for your patches with 100% thread coverage. Iron-on allows the patches to stay intact even after multiple uses.

3. Velcro Backing

Our Velcro backing is best for patches that are to be used frequently. We offer two kinds of Velcro backing, two-sided and hook-sided. Choose two-sided if your clothes have no loop fastener area. If it has one, choose hook-sided and simply sew the loop fastener to your uniform.

4. Adhesive Backing

Here is a kind of backing that is not recommended for frequent use. Adhesive backing is ideal for special events only. To use, you simply have to peel the paper over the adhesive and then stick it to your clothes. This is the reason why it is also referred as peel and stick backing.

We assure you that your patches will not wear off when you use this type of backing. We only use the most quality adhesive to cater to your needs.

5. No Backing

If you are to permanently attach your patches on your clothes, we suggest that you choose no backing. You will have to sew your custom embroidered patches on your clothes for this option. Although it requires a bit of work, you can be assured that your patches will not come off your clothes even after many washes by hand or machine.
